Today was a pretty phenomenal day. Wow I had such a burst of energy today, possibly just from sleeping early. It could be a combination of different factors such as also only eating whole foods today with a bunch of vegetables and fruits, both things I rarely do. Here, I've kept a log of how much sleep I got each day, and today is one of the rare few days I got over 8 hours of sleep:
I woke up today at around 6 AM and I felt so awake this morning. I unfortunately wasted like 2 freaking hours on Discord though which was a huge waste of time. Damn. I wasted probably the best time of the day for me on something stupid.
After Discord, I worked on catching up on some personal items that morning with the 1 hour I had left, and I was able to finish what I needed. I took my daily pictures before work started, and then prepared some food.
I cooked up some lentils, and my dad already cooked up a bunch of vegetables that morning and rice too, so I just cooked the lentils. It barely took any time at all to prepare and I worked while it cooked. After it was ready, I ate a plate or two of rice, lentils, different vegetables, and ground flax seed. It was great.
Here's where my large amount of energy comes in. I'm decently caught up on my work, sure I have items to work on, but they're getting completed at a good pace. So I'm okay taking some breaks. I played Beat Saber during these times and dang I played for very long periods without tiring at all.
For lunch I ate another plate of the same thing I ate at breakfast, except this time I added some peanuts. I probably ate two plates of that. Then I just ate two oranges, some blueberries, and some blackberries, and that was everything I ate for the day. This kind of food doesn't slow me down at all, I felt so energized after eating these foods and I felt great.
Today was also a good day in Beat Saber. I played a bunch of songs for the first time today, I just never played them ever because I heard their previews and didn't enjoy them. One of those songs was this song called Emoji VIP which someone picked in an online game, and holy moly I got a nearly perfect score the first time I played it. I think I missed 3 notes total. I won that match, and after that online match was over, I played a single player version with the "faster" setting on. Very similar results, I think I missed 9 notes this time though, but I set a decent high score, rank 1600s with the second time I ever played that song, and I did better in my first attempt. I played the song again a third time and got very close to that second attempt record, but never caught up to it.
Some other songs I played/beat for the first time today that I can recall are Given Up by Linkin Park, Angel Voices, This Time, Whatever It Takes, Victorious, Dumb Thingz, and Lvl Insane. The only two I have played previously but beat for the first time today are Angel Voices and Lvl Insane, both were songs I had very hard times with, basically losing within the first 10 seconds. Today I beat those songs completely first try.
There was also the best player I ever played with, ever, and her name was "Hooded" something. They had some girl character and they're possibly this person on YouTube I've seen, because of how they bowed after winning a match. This same YouTuber does that same exact bow, this person has been playing this game for years and is one of the best in the world I'd say. Anyway I'm not sure if this was them, they certainly didn't have the same username, but they're undoubtedly the best person I've seen in the game.
We played some very hard songs together, including Emoji VIP. Guess what? I beat them in that song! Like I said earlier, I only missed 3 notes my first time playing that song, which was a phenomenal thing to achieve even for a pro player, so I won against her. She's the best player I've ever played against, and I won. How do I know they're the best? Because in one game, for like no reason, someone voted to play the song "Ghost" and this was the hardest song in the entire game. I don't know anyone that can beat it. There's YouTube videos of people playing it, but that's not the same version!! I don't know if that's like the "pirated" version, but that version everyone is playing is far easier than this real version.
Anyway, our game was full, it had 5 people which is a full house. Before the game started, and everyone just voted Ghost, I was shaking my head and shrugging. Hooded actually did not vote for ghost either, she shrugged at me too when looking at people voting for that song. Like, why would you vote for it? No one can play it, I didn't think it was physically even possible, too many notes at way too fast a pace. I tried playing it with "No Losing" enabled and my arms started hurting just from trying to hit the notes even though I kept missing. So yeah it's a hard song and these 3 random players for some dumb reason voted for it as the next song we would play. Me and hooded just shrugged at each other, like, what are these guys thinking??
So the song starts, and no surprise me and the 3 other players lost as soon as the song picked up, which happens like 20 seconds in. However, Hooded survived!! WHAT!!!! So when you die, you get to watch the surviving players. Most players leave because they don't like watching other players. I stayed and watched and she played through several difficult parts of the song, probably for two minutes, seriously. Then she was probably like "okay everyone is gone, so I'll stop playing this song" and they just stopped swinging and lost. She was surprised I was still there, and we played some more songs together.
Anyway I played this game for a bunch of times today and I didn't take any naps throughout the day. Often I feel tired at around 2 PM, so I take a nap. Today, none of that. I don't drink any coffee ever, probably not in like 15 years and that was when I just sipped a bit of it, so I rely entirely just on my food and sleep for energy. Today I had great food, whole food plant based only, and I had the recommended amount of sleep. That's how I had incredible energy today. I felt so awake and healthy.
For work, I basically just worked on investigating and fixing some bugs a client reported. I worked on the back-end part of the UI work I completed yesterday, but didn't complete that much.
After work I played Beat Saber yet again for over an hour yet again! I played with some very good players tonight, an entire group of 4 people that were able to complete the song "What The Cat!!" which is one of the hardest songs in the game. I was able to complete most of it, but lost at one of the "crazy" parts. Anyway, I was able to beat one of them in a 1-on-1 match in the song "Lvl Insane" which was weird. How'd I manage to beat them? I actually won a few games against these guys at some songs too, even though I admit they're better than me.
There was this incredible video I found today on the gut microbiome, and holy crap I learned so much from it. I think everyone in the world should watch this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=un90A52gX-Y. It's done by one of the most foremost experts on the subject of microbiomes and wow, amazing.
Anyway that was my day today. I'm going to sleep. Probably watch some adult things before going to sleep.
